A while back I wrote about the famous case when a <href=”http://www.occultcenter.com/2008/02/mother_lifts_car_to_save_child/”>woman lifted a car to save her son. Now the news are abuzz about one more example of what people can do when extreme circumstances call for it.
It happened on Monday, APR 1st. Jeff Smith from Lebanon, OR sat on his tractor to do some work. At one point his foot slipped off the clutch and the tractor toppled over. Jeff found himself on the ground pinned by the tractor.
He had a hard time breathing and he could not break free from the 3000 pound tractor. He did the only thing he could – call for help. Luckily, his two daughters Haylee (14) and Hannah (16) were near by walking their dogs. When they heard the dad’s call for help they came running and lifted a 3000 pound machine just enough so that Jeff could slip out.
Here they all are happily recalling the event:
